The amount of child support you pay or receive is affected by whether you have primary care of your child. Texas then follows a guidelines model when determining child support. The state provides a calculator, but you need to ensure that the income figures used are accurate.
At The Law Office of Ryan C. Moe, PLLC, we have handled all types of issues related to child support for families in our community. Our lawyers understand the importance of child support as you move forward from divorce.
We will advocate for a custody arrangement that is in the best interest of your children and preserves your relationship. Then our attorneys will investigate the numbers to make sure you receive or pay a fair amount. For example, underemployment or creative accounting by a self-employed former spouse can be hard to identify.
When life happens and you can no longer pay child support following a lay off, we can help you obtain a modification of a prior order. When compensation packages increase with a promotion or new position, arguments can also be made for an increase in child support.
If the other parent refuses to pay, we have tools that we can use to seek enforcement of a child support order on your behalf.
